Familiar spots for Saints, Cougars

The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union released its preseason soccer rankings, and Cedar Rapids Xavier and Cedar Rapids Kennedy find themselves in a familiar spot.

Defending champion Xavier is rated No. 1 in Class 1A. Xavier has the 47th highest enrollment in the state, but enough sharing agreements are in place to drop the Saints to No. 54. The top 48 teams are 2A in soccer, leaving the Saints as small-school favorites once again.

Kennedy is No. 2 in 2A, behind West Des Moines Valley. Again. Valley beat the Cougars for the 2A state title in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Iowa City West, Linn-Mar and Cedar Rapids Jefferson are rated in 2A.

Entire rankings can be found at the following link:
